Access control

"I would see ip issues would be part of the system. A middleware layer that resolves stuff. The financing and infrastructure is already there and nobody has to think about." (Ex 6b, 1a-B)

"Remove the transaction costs at each step of the scholarly process. People want "clean" access across the steps. Licensing is a clear cost that's very common." (Ex 6b, 1a-G)

"We need a more fluid understanding of permissions and need to make that really easy." (Ex 6b, 1a-G)

"Implies metadata for digital rights management." (Ex 6b, 1a-G)

"More fluid access control" (Ex 6b, 1a-G)

"I have a good example of this. Had a conference w. collaboration. After conference IT wanted to close down the collaboration site because an external person was accessing it." (Ex 6b, 1a-G)

"The new thing is the openness, but there are still many who aren't willing to share. We took emails of grads & undergrads. Some grads had FaceBook; others didn't want to share info. in that way and they consciously didn't do it. It has to do w.l personality." (Ex 6b, 1a-G)

"People are very choosy about who they share with. There's an intergenerational model on publishing. There's a back-an-forth interdependency: You might now depend on a GIS grad student in order to do a degree in a different dept." (Ex 6b, 1a-G)

"And fewer barriers to access to collections that are commercially owned." (Ex 6b, 1b-B)

"Quick and easy access to copyrighted material w/o worrying about IP." (Ex 6b, 1b-D)

"From the fragments to whole thing - I want the actual book as PDF. Print on demand machines on campus. Also take care of the IP issues for me." (Ex 6b, 1b-D)

"Exceptions for copyright for scholars. We are not hindered constantly by fair use. Single system to gain access to data, like in law" (Ex 6b, 1c-A)

"related to IP. Who gets the money masquerades as legal issue. Automated broker - do I have to pay? How much? How?" (Ex 6b, 1c-C)

"Single sign on for access to scholarly resources. Shibboleth adoption is coming along. Open ID as well which is likely" (Ex 6b, 1d-A)

"IP regime that respects the educational use while still allowing creators to benefit from their work -Also, clarity around orphan works if nothing else. How'd you define benefit? It'd vary by the field. Monetary if appropriate; depends on the economics. They might just be happy with someone reading their work. I'd go for something in between; a defined and bounded fair use zone that's cross-institutional, cross-repository, allows certain applications of tools/practices within a bounded space. That space could be both teaching and research. Cross-institutional is really important for licensed resources -Research is more about collaboration across international and cross-intitutional boundaries" (Ex 6b, 1d-C)

"We don't have students of our own, our research activities are people who float between institutions; they want to bring our stuff together with stuff from elsewhere. Looking beyond institutional boundaries; lots of participants are in local communities. Fair use zone should encompass more than just institutions. There can be clearly defined communities in the usage groups. But you can't always predict these communities" (Ex 6b, 1d-C)

"Improved access and authentication services, global and local ." (Ex 6b, 1d-F)

"[Re: scholarly network.] Access. Most you can hope for Bamboo to get out of the way to let communities set their own access standards. Evolve a mechanism for knocking on the door in a new conversation. Not that hard to do technologically. Needs to be made seamless & effectively effortless." (W2, Scholarly Networks, group notes)

"Questions of identity - better managing identities can allow for a variety of research accesses to materials that might otherwise look like threats to those kinds of installations (multiple hits from counting tools on data sets)
Might be related to, how might we negotiate with owners of collections of archives that are protective of their sources? How might we create a sense of trust for sharing materials?" (W2, Tools and Repository Partners, questions and concerns, plenary notes, group 4)

"How do we handle identities to allow for research types of access to repositories etc. (types of access that otherwise might look like malicious attacks)? How might bamboo facilitate archives that are protective of their sources to feel secure enough to open them up to uses through bamboo?" (W2, Tools and Repository Partners, questions and concerns, group 4 notes)

"Licensing and IPR discussion, then told it was beyond scope. Everything else we talked about was provisional on Licensing being made possible. Maybe Bamboo could establish different levels of access that might be given to certain people for certain kinds of content. Might design/promote tools to provide different levels of access." (W2, Tools and Repositories II, plenary notes, risks and rewards)

"The second problem is the inability or difficulty for researchers to access audiovisual records related to Performing Arts. These are, in most cases, viewable only at the institution that houses them. Even when one is able to view the material, copying for later re-examination is often impossible due to copyright issues. Additionally, quoting is always done indirectly in written form, and is inevitably vague as it is impractical to reference timecode on a tape that one doesn't possess. We can certainly affirm that, compared to other fields in the Humanities, and even more so if compared to research in science, the quality of research in Performing Arts is hampered by the general difficulty in accessing records." (SN-0038 IM-Theatre, Interactive Multimedia Theatre, Raffaella Santucci, 1/7/09)

"The online newspaper databases all have authentication procedures that frequently interrupt searching or make it more time-consuming." (SN-0014 Tools to Aid Search, Review and Citation of 19th Century Newspapers, Clai Rice, 1/9/09)

"have to worry about aspects of specialized tools that allow access controls, policy to evolve in more complex ways with access control, cross-institutional access control, tool use" (W3, Tools & Content Partners, Report: Proposal and Moving Forward)

"Technical issues in delivery. Want to be able to use shared authentication service to give that to people. Not as easy as it sounds." (W3, Perspectives: Content, Stacy Kowalczyk, Digital Library Program, Indiana University)

"Not only tech problems, but process problems that stop flow of information. Copyright: legal barriers, and our own processes put on top of legal barriers. Don't have good processes for differentiating between research requests for data, and publication requests for data. Have to think about this and work through it. Need to streamline process for pub rights. Libraries beginning to offer services to help researchers w/ copyright issues. Help lower barriers by working w/ owners of licensed content. Not everyone's as generous as JSTOR in sharing data w/ researchers. Developing new language for license agreements to streamline process. Lib has a good community method for doing this work w/ licensed data. PB can help w/ this by creating community of support w/in libraries. Providing discussion forums, policy and best practices." (W3, Perspectives: Content, Stacy Kowalczyk, Digital Library Program, Indiana University)
